About

I am chiefly interested in new media and organizational communication — on how the Web, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other forms of new and social media play a role in organizations’ communicative efforts. Within this area, I concentrate on nonprofit organizations, yet also have an interest in the workings of the financial markets. Conceptually, I am interested in questions related to why organizations communicate in specific ways with their external stakeholders. This leads me to study such areas as organizational disclosure, organizational accountability, and stakeholder relations. I am interested not only in understanding why organizations do better or worse on these dimensions, but also the effects of different disclosure, stakeholder relations, and accountability practices. In a related yet newer stream of research, I am interested in the role of new media in changing information. For more, visit http://social-metrics.org/
